Inktober Day 16: Wild
ah here it is. that fence. gave me. blisters. but it was SO worth it because look at this. whoops looks like i spilled my entire aesthetic. what can you do? (appreciate the fence, thats what you can do)
epic chrismas w your weird grandpa
at this point reading hogfather has become some sort of holiday tradition for me. i just love these two so much. merry christmas 🎄🎇
Inktober Day 15: Legend
i have never driven to the woods and pitched a tent and told scary stories around a fire. so whatever yarn guy on the left is spinning here is probably about as fantastical as my perception of the rituals involved in a "camp"
Inktober Day 14: Overgrown
this looks... so good. and like it took me ages, but it didnt. hardest part was the dirt texture on the left, tbh. so im a big fan. i promise this is the last morbid one, i was In A Mood that week
In the background, rows and rows of graves fade into the distance. Above the pitch black sky is a blanket of storm clouds. End ID.]
Inktober Day 13: Ash-tray
skull and a candle dude. its the naked lady of still lifes (and yes, thats the correct plural). but oh wait, something else is going onnn!!!
i dont know if i nailed the shadows but its not like there are a lot of references for... this. rlly proud of the skull though. its a mighty complicated object
Inktober Day 11: Snow
i dont trust snow bc it can look beautifully pristine but then a little bit melts off and Things start coming to the surface
anyway look at those mountains. its almost like im there
Inktober Day 12: Dragon
maybe i shouldve gone with a scratchy or näif sort of style to better communicate that its a storybook. oh well i had fun with the medieval-y typography
Inktober Day 10: Pattern
this one was gonna be a doozy no matter what bc its so difficult for me to draw repetitive/consistent things without suffering a horrible fit of boredom, which is a real problem if youre into comics?? so i might as well make it simple and cute
However, the gutters between panels are filled with words. From left to right, the vertical gutters read: "I want you to know how much you", "mean to me / How much you light", and "up my life with your smile..." The text in the horizontal gutters is upside down. From top to bottom, it reads: "Vertigo Zest Yen Eager Longings", "Trepidation Anxiety Restless", and "Maniac Ecstasy Breathless Love me". End ID.]
Inktober Day 9: Swing
it was so hard to fill in all those floorboards but so worth it bc it looks gorgeous. i love how this one turned out exactly how i imagined it. like it exists now. in the real world. wow
Inktober Day 8: Fragile
i spent over an hour brainstorming some really highfalutin ideas that would incorporate disintegration. and then this happened
Inktober Day 7: Enchanted
this is what it feels like to wander around the outskirts of zagreb on a summer night
Inktober Day 6: Husky
oh damn two whole colors?? i was getting too excited so i had to chill out with the next few.
ridiculous how this exact image came into my head when i read the prompt. ok not exactly. at first i wanted to show the bottom caller’s knees buckling, but it didnt fit in the frame. but now you know anyway
The top caller wears a fur-trimmed robe and their eyes are obscured by stark shadows. A cigarette hangs out of their glossy lips, which are curved into an open-mouthed smile. They hold a red handset with their little finger raised.
The bottom caller is in a phone booth. They wear a black hat and coat and lean against one of the barred windows. On the outside, the glass is plastered with advertisements. End ID.]
Inktober Day 5: Build
more red on black and white, more challenging stuff, this time it’s anatomy. and imagery straight from my dreams.
yeah. yeah i’m proud of this one. i mean, theyre all intensely personal in more or less convoluted ways. but here i ended up going... straight up confessional
Inktober Day 4: Bait
first taste of the whole "single splash of red among black and white" thing. i really like how it looks. also get a load of that brick texture
Inktober Day 3: Freeze
look at this. i drew that gun from reference. love using that effect with the fine lines for shiny metal. and more of a texture on the handle.
yes im going through a film noir phase rn
Inktober Day 2: Mindless
youve heard of procastinating on making art now get ready for procastinating on posting art thats been long finished, for some reason?? but i finally took photos of everything so. guess ill be putting up a couple at a time or sth.
anyway, this one. i like it. simple style for a simple idea. also im learning how to hatch.
Inktober Day 1: Ring
im doing ingk tober... its happening. pretty literal with this one, not that theres anythin wrong with that. or with a self indulgent proposal phantasy
last visit to snowdin
better late than never lol... happy 4th anniversary to the game that saved my life!!!
this is my absolute favorite line/moment that i dont see aknowledged often but for some reason rlly hit me. like it encapsulates the subtle bittersweetness of the whole story.
also text wrapping around art is so my jam
Frisk is a child with stylized yellow skin and short brown hair with bangs. They wear a long-sleeved striped shirt, shorts and boots. Papyrus is a tall cartoon skeleton. He wears a sort of superhero costume, with a billowing red ragged cape, blue underpants and red mittens.
The two figures are rendered in flat, lineless colors washed in blue. The background is light blue and dissolves into white at the bottom, providing an esoteric ribbon for the “motto”. End ID.]
i think im getting the hang of this. can you tell that i love organic shapes!! also the first time ive drawn a couch with a proper reference. might do more interior scenes bc i have a newfound love for them.
The person is a slender black silhouette with a white wobbly closed-lip smile. One of their hands clutches a light pink pillow to their chest and the other is placed against their forehead dramatically. Above their head are lots of pink, red and orange floating hearts.
On the couch is the opened envelope and an orange pillow. To the left is an accent table with a half-empty glass of brandy on it.
The piece is rendered in flat, lineless blocks of color. The furniture is in shades of dark red, and the wall and floor are beige. End ID.]
no more clowns
*tablet breaks* guess ill just have to learn a completely new technique and set of tools. the sappies cant wait... hope you like!
Dad's face is featureless except for his nose; he is all white except for his black shoes. John's face is turned away; he has black hair and wears a dark grey shirt.
The room is dark and tinted blue; the door is ajar so there is some light coming through, and the moon can be seen through a window. The whole piece is rendered in flat colors, with very little shading. The two characters have thick black outlines, while the background is lineless. End ID.]
i regret nothing
They wear a white Hawaiian shirt with cyan and black geometric patterns, cyan booty shorts with white details, a cropped blazer and sandals. The blazer and sandals have the same wavy vertical gradient from light to dark blue which resembles the background of the site’s logo. They also wear aviator sunglasses, a bottom lip piercing, a tattoo choker and a necklace. There is a rainbow bandana bracelet on their right wrist, a ball hair tie on the left one and several anklets on their left ankle, one of which is made from seashells.
Above the person, the text “Waterfall D. Social” is displayed in a cartoony font, in white and cyan. The background is a vertical gradient from dark blue to white. End ID.]
